Since September 2017, I am a permanent theoretical/computational physicist in the experimental Physics@High Intensity (PHI) group headed by Dr. F. Quéré.
My main activities include: (i) Development of highly accurate numerical methods (ii) numerical modelling with PIC codes on large supercomputers of
UHI interactions in support of experiments performed on the UHI 100 laser (iii) Optimization of PIC codes on exascale architectures.
Benchmarking of the pseudo-spectral PIC code that I developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab against laser-plasma mirror
experiments performed in the group of Dr. Fabien Quéré with the 100TW laser UHI 100.
Development of a new generation of highly-accurate and massively parallel pseudo-spectral PIC codes for the modelling of
laser-plasma interactions at high intensity. Development of new data structures and portable optimization techniques for
porting PIC codes on future generation of exascale computers.
Numerical study with PIC codes of electron ejection and acceleration on relativistic plasma mirrors. Application to time-resolved electron diffraction.
2013 : Guest scientist position @ MPIPKS, Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems, Dresden, Germany
Numerical study of the influence of field and collisional ionization on attosecond pulse generation with PIC codes.
2009 : MSc Intern researcher @ BELLA center, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, CA, USA
Advisors: Pr. W.P. Leemans and Dr. C. B. Schroeder.
MSc thesis: "Positron production and acceleration in a plasma wakefield accelerator"
